Blarney Stone Craft

It's Time for my favorite color.....GREEN! And time to celebrate St. Patricks Day, but personally, I like celebrating green more.  :-) 
Have your Ankle Biters make their very own Blarney Stones to smooch!  Not familiar with the Blarney story?  Here it is in short....

In southwestern Ireland, there is a very famous stone, called the Blarney Stone. It is located high up in Blarney Castle. If you kiss the Blarney Stone (while in a very awkward upside down manner...Google images), it is supposed to give you the gift of eloquence.

Essentially, here's what you need:

A smooth rock & some green paint

Other supplies:
  • brush
  • glue
  • black Sharpie marker
  • glitter, sequins, plastic jewels, googly eyes, bits of yarn, etc.
Clean and dry rock.  Paint it green and let paint dry completely.  Its pretty much done now, but if the wee ones would like to further embellish their Blarney stone by making a face with the marker or gluing glitter and other stuff, by all means, let em go at it.....just make sure they're good and dry before the smoochin' starts ;-)

Have fun & get messy!
